A few weeks ago I blogged that a new book on Scrimshaw artwork was being authored by Jim Stevens from Colorado, called “Scrimshaw Techniques.”

Jim was nice enough to include some of my scrimshaw work in his book, and so I have been anxious to see how it came out. The book was released for sale a couple of weeks ago at Schiffer’s website, and I found it this morning on Amazon as well.

As soon as my purchased copy arrives, I’ll give a book review and tell you what I think about the new book.

Here is the link to the Schiffer Publishing site where you can buy the book.

The book is listed as a “Preorder” on Amazon: I’m cheap, so when my Amazon copy comes, I’ll let you know what I think of the book.

Here is the old blog listing where I described the book coming to print:

Stumped on what “Scrimshaw” is, here is the my own “How To Scrimshaw” information I blogged called “A Scrimshaw Journey.”

Very interesting links. Opens up a whole new avenue of working with wood also.
Scrimshaw inlays anyone?
